    I will be 57 tomorrow. Last time I saw my Doctor (past summer) I said that I feel great and people tell me all the time I look young for my age. He looked at me with a straight face and said "and you believe them"? Anyway, I carry mainly a SP101 .357 but I do carry my XD40 and Ruger P345 at times. I own several of each, but I have always had a love for wheel guns. Just wanted to add that my birthday present to myself is a new Ruger New Model Blackhawk, stainless and wood grips, 4.62" barrel.

    I am 80 last april, my doctor told me to keep doing what I am doing. I took his advise and two weeks ago bought another revolver, Ruger Blackhawk 45 colt con v. I like all kinds of guns but always have been hung up on the wheelguns. My earliest memories are of my fathers Colt 45 SAA with genuine ivory grips.

    I'm 75, with LOTS of arthritis. Magnum recoil is no longer an option, nor is an eleven-ounce +P .38 Special. I carry an all-steel no-dash Smith 640 (rated, according to the etching inside the frame, for +P+), loaded with Remington +P 158-grain LSWCHP. I can shoot it comfortably and have great confidence in its ability to save my elderly bacon in most situations. My house revolver (I also have a 20-inch side-by-side double 12 gauge) is a Smith Model 10-5 with the same ammo as the carry piece.

    Really like revolvers but like the auto's also. I carry each about equally depending where I am going.

    Well Bob, wisdom like fine wines can mature with age but only if the grapes were good to begin with.

    Turned 64 this year. Feel pretty good,,, till I see a picture, (Who is that old man! Can't be me!). Cameras are not my friend. No stereotypes as far as preferences. EDC's either an M&P Shield or a J frame. Collection's about 50-50 as well. Like em all and shoot em all, some more than others.

    For us GEEZERS check out http://oldgunhand.com

    me i am 63 and i love my Ruger SR40C. If it gets where I find it hard to shoot the .40, ill go to Ruger SR9C. (I would also like a Ruger LCR, I understand it does double duty either .357 Magnum or .38+P)

    As in my case.

    Unfortunately wisdom is like fine wines. While it's true some do get better with age but only if the grapes were good in the first place.

    Old or young is a matter of perspective...did you realize from the results that over 60% of those participating are 40+?

    Kind of an interesting factoid

    Growing old is mandatory...Growing up is optional....My wife is always telling me to quit acting like a twenty year old just because I want to shoot guns and go on road trips on my motorcycle....I'm 62 years old..I have earned every gray hair that I have left and every wrinkle and scar. I shoot and carry semi-automatics because I like having 17 shots compared to six. I know someone's going to say if I can't get it done with six I've lost. I know this,still 17 feels better.
